debman(1) read man pages from uninstalled packages

SYNOPSIS

debman -f filename [-- man(1) options] name
debman -p package [-- man(1) options] name

DESCRIPTION

debman extracts a Debian package into a temporary directory and displays manual pages from it. If the -f option is used, it will use a local .deb file; if the -p option is used, it will download the named package using debget.

ENVIRONMENT

debman intentionally ignores any $MANPATH environment variable that might be set, and constructs its own such that only manual pages within the package will be displayed.
